When you're a "horror guy" and you're friends with other "horror guys," October becomes the busiest month of the year. It turns out that the looming specter of Covid-19 doesn't change that fact. So far this spooky season I've appeared on Tracks of the Damned to talk about Freddy vs. Jason, talked about found footage horror for my own podcast, and made a list of scary movies you can find streaming right now.
October isn't done with me yet, because, this weekend, I recorded a marathon chat with the Director's Club Podcast, specifically Patrick Ripoll (also of Tracks of the Damned) and Now Playing Network head honcho Jim Laczkowski. The subject? Lucio Fulci. And we talked about it for three and a half hours. Well, that's not entirely true, we talk about other movies we've recently seen for about 50 minutes at the top, but, after that, it's all Fulci baby. We end up covering a lot of the man's post-comedy years, but discuss Lizard in a Woman's Skin (Italian: Una lucertola con la pelle di donna, 1971) and The Beyond (Italian: E tu vivrai nel terrore! L'aldilà, 1981) in the greatest detail.
